Rev. Brad Palmer, Minister

Our sincere Christian sympathy is extended to Evelyn Sloat and her family on the passing of her sister, Helen M. Stallard. A Celebration of Life service will be held later in the summer in Georgia.

Sunday School meets each Sunday morning at 10:00 AM. At this time there is an adult class and a youth class.

Today we honor our students and school staff (past and present) with pencils and apples. School starts tomorrow for Sullivan County and Kingsport. Bristol students went to school last Tuesday. Have a great school year!

Choir Practice will be Wednesday, August 9, at 7:00 PM. Come to hear about the Christmas Cantata. Speaking of the Christmas Cantata, we need the help of the congregation. The Session gave Don permission to order materials for a beautiful Christmas program. Only problem is that there is no money in the budget for this expenditure. So we need contributions from all of us to pay for this. Just indicate your contribution on your check or offering envelope. Thanks in advance.

The Church Picnic will be Sunday, August 13, at Steele’s Creek Park. Come early and enjoy the park. We have the air conditioned shelter from 3:00 PM until 8:00 PM. We will play bingo beginning at 5:00 PM and have supper afterwards. Bring bingo prizes for men, women, boys and girls. Drinks will be provided. Bring your favorite picnic dish or two.

Remember Race Weekend at BMS August 17 -19. The traffic pattern changes are on the bulletin board.
